Music From Africa Vol. 2 Shangaan Traditional / Sotho Chant

    The 'Music From Africa' series' comprises two volumes of never-heard South African library music from the early 80s. They were recorded and produced by Johannesburg musician / producer Tom Mkhize and released then on vinyl only to be sent to TV and radio stations, as well as cinema productions (never commercially available). Traditional South African rhythms re-imagined, dubbed-out and disco-fied by this legendary producer! Each side of each volume is an A-side of the original LP's, the B-Sides were only 10/15 seconds loops of the tracks from A-sides designed as radio jingles and there was no interest in keeping them for the reissues.

      Zimba

      Baleka - Inc. Comet Is Coming / Siwo Edits

        In the mid-70s, musician and songwriter Phil Arosa fled Southern Rhodesia's apartheid (now Zimbabwe) to settle in the Netherlands and pursue his musical career under more mundane skies. Alongside his partner Marga, he started the band Zimba which played for ten years in clubs around the country. During those years, ‘Baleka’ was the only studio recorded song and was released in 1983. This record went unnoticed at the time but this minimal and powerful mix of African rhythms with a new wave voice and an irresistible mbira motif deserved better. Luckily, Nyami Nyami step onto the scene and revive the track, inviting London friends The Comet Is Coming and Parisian Blackjoy (Siwo) to revisit this piece. The results are two very different versions of ‘Baleka’ but definitely carved for the dancefloors.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Patrick says: Mutant Afro-funk of the highest order right here as Zimba's sole release gets the full reissue treatment from Nyami Nyami. Rubbery basslines, trippy mbira and clattering polyrhythms abound as Zimba rattle through insane Afro-cosmic territories. Two copies for me please!
